TOTAL ANTWERP REFINERY VISIT
After more than five years of work and capital expenditure of more than €1 billion, Antwerp — Total’s largest refining and petrochemicals complex in Europe — has completed its transformation. The complex is composed of a refinery that processes 338,000 barrels of crude oil per day, apetrochemical plant that manufactures base chemicals and a facility that produces polymers. It has been completely reorganized to meet three objectives: respond to market demand by manufacturing more light products that meet the strictest environmental standards, make the complex more flexible so it can use the most cost-advantaged feedstocks available and increase synergies between refining and petrochemicals.
With its 1,700 employees, Antwerp is poised to become one of Total’s most competitive complexes.
